Terrific! Appealing!

The Riviera is a beautiful ship and the size is perfect. Crew to traveler is excellent and one will never feel unattended.

Rooms are lovely with the exception of the hard chairs and couch. Wide variety of TV\, movies and DVD's available. Room service is excellent.

Nice to have water and soft drinks available and included in the price of the cruise. Bars are cozy and friendly.

Excursions are on the pricey side but the advantage is the ship takes responsibility for them and that includes waiting if they are late back to the ship.

Lovely string quartet but it was placed in an awkward spot which made it hard for them to play and hard to enjoy their work.

Food is outstanding and the variety is amazing.

Dress is casual and no one has to be formal. Many people enjoyed that. Evening entertainment is average to poor. Take some good books along. There is a terrific library and you can swap books you bring with some that others have brought.

Overall\, heads above many other lines and they really care. Every detail is observed and taken care of. If they do not notice\, tell them your needs and the crew will respond.

Pros: The high standards of the crew

Cons: The room furniture; it is very hard and uncomfortable to sit on.
